  • 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme leaves
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 dried bay leaf

  • 1 carton (32 ounces) Progresso™ chicken broth (4 cups)
  • 1 cup frozen snow (Chinese) pea pods
  • 2 cups uncooked wide egg noodles

    Stir in pea pods and noodles. Increase heat setting to high. Cover and cook 20 minutes or until noodles are tender. Remove chicken from cooker; place on cutting board. Shred chicken, using 2 forks. Return chicken to cooker. Remove bay leaf.

  • Add a teaspoon of grated lemon peel for a Greek touch.
  • Leaving the pieces of carrots big enough for a fork keeps them fresh tasting, not mushy. Be sure to offer a fork when serving this hearty soup.
  • Top each serving with a spoonful of pesto for an added boost of flavor.
